Diablo 4, the latest installment of the popular dungeon crawler, comes out on June 6, but players can try out some of the game in an open beta happening on Friday.
The third Diablo 4 open beta — which developer Blizzard Entertainment is calling a Server Slam — will give fans of the series one last chance to try out the game before it launches. The beta started on May 12, and it will focus on the early parts of the campaign covering the prologue and Act 1, which takes place in the Fractured Peaks zone. Players will be able to max their characters to level 20 but can still play the beta throughout the weekend beyond that. Due to the open beta being available to anyone who wants to try it, players should expect long queue times.
